THE MUSE 




We fear you think it an old, old story 

That we're quoting the annual salutatory 

When we " bid you a welcome, our comrades dear, 

And all those who have helped us through the year,' 

But still as we offer our book, we feel, 

Since our heart is in it, it's bound to appeal.

THE MMS'S 



For the first fifteen years of St. Mary's there were but the three buildings that 
now form the central group. The Chapel was on the first floor of East Rock; and the 
Rector and his family lived in the east half of the second floor of the Main Building; 
dormitories of the style of those still surviving were on both floors of West Rock and 
on the second floor of East Rock as well as on the third floor of the Main Building. 

In 1867 the Chapel was built by the owner of the property according to Dr. 
Smedes' wishes. It was designed by Upjohn, a famous architect of the time, and the 
first floor of East Rock became available for other purposes. During the war as many 
individuals found a home in the school as have ever been accomodated since, but there 
was much "doubling up." In ordinary times, however, the full number of boarding 
pupils was usually less than a hundred. 

In 1884 the Art Building, intended for recitation purposes only, was added to 
the equipment. The building was scarcely finished when it caught fire and was 
entirely burned, but without delay the present building was erected on the same foun- 
dations. No need for further new buildings was felt from this time until after the 
coming of Dr. Bratton, when his magnetic influence and the inauguration of an active 
campaign for students for what was now the Diocesan School led to a complete over- 
flowing of the buildings. As speedily as possible funds were secured and Dr. Bratton 
had the North Dormitory and Rectory erected, meantime using the old Blount man- 
sion across the street as an overflow dormitory. 

The loss of the wooden Infirmary by fire in 1904 led to the building of the new 
brick Infirmary in that year; the next year the Chapel was rebuilt and enlarged through 
the efforts of the Alumna; in 1907 the Auditorium was erected as the Eliza Battle 
Pittman Memorial, and in 1909, partly through the Clement Legacy, Clement Hall 
and East and West Wing were added. 

In the last session the enrollment at St. Mary's for the first time passed the 
three hundred mark, and more resident St. Mary's girls were in attendance than 
ever before. The boarding accomodations are at present limited to one hundred and 
seventy-five, which, however, still makes St. Mary's the largest Episcopal resident school 
for girls and young women in this country.

Tune — "Believe me, if all those endeariDg young charms" 

St. Mary's, wherever thy daughters may be, 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling. 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove; 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 



Beloved St. Mary's ! How great is our debt ! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast-rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings o'er woodland and bill, 

Of earnestness, wisdom and love. 

H. E. H., 1905.

The Alumnse Association of St. Mary's was established in 1880 and meets annually at Commence- 
ment. It has done effective work in aiding the progress of the School and grows yearly stronger and 
more vigorous. 

The Alumnse Chapters meet in their several towns and cities on November 1st, All Saints, which 
is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th, the date of the first opening of St. Mary's, which is 
observed as Alumnce Day. There are active Alumnae Chapters in New York City, Baltimore, and 
many points in the South. 

The most important special work accomplished by the Alumnae Association has been the estab- 
lishment of the Smedes Memorial Scholarship, to the memory of the Founder and his son, the second 
Rector of St. Mary's; and the rebuilding of the Chapel. Its present special work is the fund for estab- 
slihing the Mary Iredell and the Kate McKimmon Scholarships.

In a grove of stately oak trees, 
Where the sunlight lies, 
Stands St. Mary's true and noble, 
'Neath the Southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh sound her praises, 
Chorus full and free, 

Hail, St. Mary's, Alma Mater, 
Hail, all hail to thee! 

Well we love the little chapel, 
Ever hold it dear; 
Hear the echoes of the music 
Rising soft and clear. 

Far and wide, etc. 

There the ivy and the roses 
Climb the old stone wall, 
There the sweet, enticing bird notes 
Sound their magic call. 

Far and wide, etc. 

And the bonds of friendship strengthen 
As her beauties charm; 
We draw close to Alma Mater, 
Trust her guiding arm. 

Far and wide, etc.

Come one and all, your voices lend, 

In radiant tones our hymn we raise 
To Alma Mater's glory, spend 

Our every effort for her praise. 
With glowing hearts we view these walls, 

To them our girlhood mem'ries cling; 
You campus green and well-loved halls, 

To you our grateful hymn we sing. 

Hail, hail, constant, true 
Gleams thy light serene! 

We, thy loving daughters, 
Hail St. Mary's queen! 

Dear Alma Mater, praise we bring 

For friendships nurtured at your side; 
No dearer, sweeter ties will cling 

To any hearts than here abide. 
Inspired by you our thoughts enfold 

A larger aim. In all you've seemed 
To guide our steps, our fives to mold 

To nobler things we had not dreamed. 



Hail, hail, constant, true 
Gleams thy light serene! 

We, thy loving daughters, 
Hail St. Mary's queen!

Do not think the word statistic 
Has a meaning strangely mystic 
Or a businesslike connection 
With the census-taking man. 
It just registers our voting 
In our population floating 
Our intimate opinion 
Of the girls who lead the van. 

We find one supremely pretty 
Or above them all most witty 
Or one who treads a measure 
On the most fantastic toe. 
Our faith in them unshaken 
We have had their pictures taken 
And these beauties, wits and sages 
Make a truly stunning show. 

It's true there're fewer faces 

Than we have enlisted places 

But the reason isn't hidden 

If you'll only look with care. 

Not one chosen one was slighted 

But some selfish girls united 

More attractions than they should have, 

More charms than were their share.

3|asifrimura tEogo at g>t. jfflarp's 

(With apologies to Wallace Irwin) 

The last school I were divorced from answered by the name of that famous St. 
Mary which resides in the suburbs of A & M. This educator were a famous winter 
resort for burglars of all classes, except the wealthy, who come there for their financial 
health. 

I was enjoying dreams of chicken salad and other fowl affairs when, Oh horrors! 
I am awoke by some one clambering in my window. I give heroine-like scream for 
help, and Hon. teacher escort him out by front door, which are a more proper exit than 
his entrance. 

We elope off to sleep, but can't do so for our minds resembled scrambled brains. 

Hon. Editors, hardly could I recuperate from this sleepless and adventureful night, 
when something happened ! Three Hon. quituates from class of 1914 were swinging 
and collapsed ! There were a sudden falling off of the Senior class. There never was 
Ch a weighty subject for them was weighty girls! Of course I sniggle and giggle in 
spite of my usefulness attempts not to do so, yet it refuse not to escape. 

"How do you?" they yellup with looks at me peculiar to daggers and agonizing, 
but thenceforth disremember their crossness on account of because a box are announced. 
With immediate quickness they bounce from the ground like they got there, or speedier, 
and gallup off limpfully to eats, where they do so. When all eatables has been con- 
summated they pass to next, and so onwards! 

Hon. Editors, how could 75 girls devour 69 cakes, 11 and J 2 olives and other, etc.? 
Yet so! 

"Where are all that ingredients eloped to?" . I ask for answer. But this are too 
intellectual questions for reply, for they are filled with something else than thoughts. 

Why do unpleasantries occur? This are a solution which never are solved, and yet 
they do so. Small poxes are very independent animules and refused to be safely locked 
up as should be. Without invitation they make their way to the school and refuse to 
be expelled. 

Hon. Doctor approach us with all knowledgeful expression and prepare for vac- 
cination, and do so! whether or not it are desirable feeling, and hellups and yellups 
and faints are wasteful. 

How students deplore around with arms posted to keep off trespassers, and it are 
considerable time before smiles are used as should be. 

And yet catastrophies follows calamities! 

It were on account of inefficiency of brain that cause me to be exploded off from 
that asylum of learning. Exam, time pop up when least expected and approach up 
with question mark eyebrows. 

The night before Hon. Eng. exam, arrive up, at 3 o'clock a. m., my alarmer blast 
off with considerable explosion. At firstly I disremember, but are reminded by a 
punch that it are time to get up for the health of the brain which need considerable

exercise soonly. While I are transacting myself to another room in which light are 
burning, oh horrors, that floor make noise peculiar to rats, only more so, and Hon. 
teacher approach up with mad-dog expression. 

"Why are you thus separate from your bed at 3 o'clock in the morning a. m. 
before breakfast?" She anger. 

"Making my units," I excuse. 

"This are no time for units," she deplore for unreasonableness. 
"Because you thusly disturb me, you may vacate yourself as soon as possible." 
I feel like approaching zero as a physical limit and do so. 

Hoping you are the same,

pnfes; anb tfje "CruiMjanfe Pabp" 

(Translated from the original language by Elizabeth Atkinson Lay) 

Characters: 
Binks — the Cruikshanks' Cat. 
Ernest, Jr. — the Cruikshanks' baby. 

Scene: A bedroom in Mrs. Cruikshank's apartments. 
Time: The lunch period. 

Ernest, Jr., lies on the bed supposedly asleep, the bell rings and Mrs. Cruikshank 
goes out. Enter, from underneath the bed, Binks. He jumps up on the bed and Ernest 
immediately awakes. 

Binks — My dear little Crook, I 

Ernest, Jr. — Here is where I put my foot down. I can't make those girls stop calling 
me "Little Crook," the " Cruikshanks' Baby, " and other insulting names; but I 
don't see why when a person has a name, and a nice, easy name at that 

Binks — My dear Ernest, speaking of names, did you know that I was christened Robert 
Dante Gabriel Rossetti Chambers? 

Ernest — Indeed ! 

Binks — Yes, and imagine the shock I received when those girls nicknamed me "Binks !" 
My mother was very literary and so 

Ernest? — Binks, would you like me to call you Dante? 

Binks — Oh, if you would be so accomodating. 

Ernest — I am always accomodating. Miss Sutton says I get it from my father. You 
know, Binks, I had a very sweet disposition when I first came to St. Mary's. 

Binks — Oh, yes; such a pity 

Ernest — But, goodness, it's such a responsibility having such splendid parents and 
every one expects me to live up to them, which 

Binks is impossible. You are a very lucky boy, Ernest, to have 

Ernest — But it keeps me worn to the bone trying to be a credit to them. And the 
noises the girls make — My gracious, what was that ! ! ! 

Binks — Only Emma, I suppose she didn't hear the bell, and so 

Ernest — She had to tumble all the way down stairs and scare me to death. If I hadn't 
given up saying bad words during Lent I would be tempted to 

Binks — Ah, please don't, you shock me, Ernest, and I am sure your dear mother 

Ernest — There you go again 

Binks — I almost forgot the important news I have to tell you. I was in the library 
yesterday, and it seems that the girls have to write some awful paper, a compo- 
sition they called it, and so they were all racking their brains to 

Ernest — I am firmly convinced that they haven't any!

Binks — Anyhow one girl said she was going to write about you and me and 

Eknest — At last, some ray of sense in one girl at least 

Binks — But the other girls said: "That would be impossible. Why, they ean't even 

talk, and oats and babies haven't any character." Now what do you think of 

that? 
Ernest — Binks — Dante, I meant to say — that is only another manifestation of their 

depravity. Oh, when I first came I thought they were lovely. They gave me a 

beautiful carriage and the loveliest presents, but that's just the trouble; they don't 

think I hafve, any .character of my own 

Binks — Yes, th«£y say you get your charming (?) disposition from your father 

and 

Ernest — It used to be charming 'til 

Binks — And your intelligence from your mother 

Ernest— And they call me insulting names and 

Binks — iLet's proclaim our troubles to the world 

Ernest? — But they'll just think a pin is sticking me. 

Binks — Meow, meow, m-e-o-w, m-e-e— o-o-o-w-w-, mee-ee-oo-oo-w-w. 

Ernest — Boo, hoo, b-o-o-o- h-o-o-o-o, b-o-oo- oo- oo- h-oo- oo- oo- oo. 

Enter Mrs. Cruikshank. Binks slips out of the door unseen. 

Mrs. C. — I thought I heard that cat in here. (Opens the door). Oh, Binks, here is 
your dinner. (Takes up the baby.) There, there, what is hurting my baby? Is a 
pin sticking him? 

Binks — Oh, my! 

Ernest — I told you so! Ah, woe is me! 

N. B. (By request of Ernest and Binks) : All animals and babies have a language 
of their own, and the sooner those foolish girls learn it the better. It is much more dif- 
ficult than your foolish language, and as your brains are not equal to learning it we have 
to learn yours. Also we would like to announce that we have characters and very fine 
ones, too.

This book 's not for the public, 

But for the initiated. 

It 's not for rank outsiders, 

For their taste is vitiated. 

It 's ours and yours, our true friends, 

Our most carefully selected ; 

And it bears a greeting gracious, 

Which we think 's not unexpected.
